MAGiC scan could provide several different clinical relevant weighted images and quantitative tissue relaxation time with use of a multi-slice, multi-echo, and multi-delay acquisition in the single scan. In this study, a homemade phantom containing 7 tubes with various concentrations of aqueous CuSO4 was used to quantitatively validate the image quality of a MAGiC scan. Results show that overall diagnostic image quality using MAGiC is comparable to that using conventional scanning, but a slight contrast difference is seen where T1 values are low (outside the range of brain T1 values, less than 500 ms)
